Black History Studies in association with Marcus Garvey Library presents the FREE Screening of 'The Trials of Muhammad Ali' on Thursday 3rd November 2016.
The Trials of Muhammad Ali examines the life of boxer Muhammad Ali outside the ring, beginning with the announcement of his deeply held and controversial Islamic religious beliefs and the decision to change his 'white man's name' of Cassius Clay to Muhammad Ali. Ali refused to serve in the Vietnam War - even after his status as a conscientious objector was denied - on the grounds of protesting racial injustice at home. This documentary explores what made him such a controversial, charismatic and influential figure, not only in the sporting arena, but in world history generally.
On the night there will also be a masterpiece Ali tribute from the Poet TuggStar
An insightful Ali film breakdown presentation from the "Film doctor," bro Hakim.
Inspirational words from Ambrose Mendy who took Nigel Benn "The Dark Destroyer" to World Championship titles and Minister Hilary Muhammad representing solidarity and upliftment from the Honourable Minister Louis Farrakhan!!
